Question : What is the Dua to say when looking at one self in the mirror?

Answer: Assalam aleykum,

According to what is in Imam an-Nawwawi’s ‘al-Adhkaar,’ this dua is related in a sahih hadith.

ابن السني عن عليّ رضي الله عنه
أن النبيّ صلى الله عليه و سلّم كان إذا نظر في المرآة قال: الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ، اللَّهُمَّ كَمَا حَسَّنْتَ خَلْقِي فَحَسِّنْ خُلُقِي

AlhamduLlilahi Allahumma kama hassanta khalqi fahassin khuluqi

When the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) looked in the mirror, he said, “Praise be to Allah. Oh Allah, as you have beautified me, beautify my character.”
